Industry Overview

The Indian logistics market recorded $104.10 billion revenue in 2014, and is likely to reach revenues of $150-$160 billion by 2020.Transportation accounts for about 60 per cent of the market revenues. Demand for project logistics services will be particularly strong in the manufacturing sector as the Indian Government’s push to increase the manufacturing output in the country will spur infrastructural activities in this space. The total market opportunity for project logistics services in India is estimated to be $150.86 billion for the 2014-2019. India is strategically placed in a thriving trade zone connecting South East Asia and Oceania on one end and Middle East, Africa and Europe on the other end. India can develop itself as a logistics hub for a few of such types of trades. India also has a strong potential to develop its RoRo (Roll on Roll off) terminals into regional consolidation and distribution centers for automobiles produced in India and South East Asia. Similar hubs can also be developed for container trade and liquid cargo.
The trade logistics network forms the backbone of modern supra-national supply chains. Even if global production were to shift to India due to favourable wage-labour arbitrage, skilled work force, availability of industry specific clusters, reduction in non-tariff barriers amongst other incentives and she becomes the factory of the world a la China, high logistics costs could negate any low cost production advantage. Indian logistics costs are estimated to be at a high of around 13 to 14 per cent of GDP, almost double, when compared with 7 to 8 per cent of GDP in developed countries having superior logistics performance. National competitiveness as a whole would decide the success of ‚ÄėMake in India‚Äô strategy, which cannot be divorced from trade logistics performance. Fortunately, the logistics barriers faced by India are self-imposed and are not due to any geographical disadvantage such as being landlocked.
